    Re: 2 pump sessions or 3?

    That's what I figured. I typically get about 3oz a session, sometimes 4, so on some days I pump a fourth time in the car to get an extra oz or 2 to meet her usual intake of about 11-12oz while we are...

    2 pump sessions or 3?

    I am away from my baby from 7am-330pm, working as a teacher. Right now, I nurse her at 630am, and pump 3 times between 730 and 3pm, working around my class schedule. A couple times I've had meetings...

    Nipples blanching when pumping

    Today was my first day back at work and I pumped while there. I'm pretty sure I use the right size flanges as my nipples don't rub on the plastic and pumping is pretty comfortable. However, I did...
  4. Re: Freeze immediately and reduce lipase impact?

    I have a lipase issue and scald as well. I've tested my milk and in the fridge it's good for about 12-18 hours- once it hits 24 it's usually yucky. I pump at work, so I scald it all at home at night...

    Re: Excess lipase with 2nd baby?

    Well, refrigerated a little milk to test and looks like I'm destined to scald again. :) 24 hours it was fine, but this morning at 48 it tasted like spit up. :( looks like I'll be able to avoid...

    Re: Upper lip tie- what to do?

    Btw- if you're on Facebook, check out tongue tie support group. So many informed moms and even some docs who specialize in ties can help you. They also have a list of preferred providers so maybe...

    Re: Upper lip tie- what to do?

    I really recommend getting the tie taken care of. Also, can you get a 2nd opinion on the possible tongue tie? Specifically from a pedi dentist who takes care of ties regularly. Very often when...

    Re: Thinking about bf after 12 months

    I love toddler nursing so far. My DS is almost 14 months, and during the week, we nurse overnight a few times, early morning, after work and at bedtime. Weekends are pretty much the same except for...

  12. Re: stop pumping but continue breatfeeding?

    I'm pump-weaning too, and have been anxious about this. I'm down to 2 sessions a day at work, and will cut the 2nd one next week. I'm not worried about the morning/night during the week, but how do...

    Re: Challenges with daycare

    Increasing volume of bottles seems to be the norm for formula fed babies, but not breastfed babies. For example, my friend FFs and her 6 month old son takes 8oz (!) bottles every 4 hours or so. My DS...

    Re: 1st night away from baby coming up...

    Yup, I'll be pumping. I'm thinking it will probably be a late night, so I'll pump before we go out, before bed and then when I get up. DH has spent plenty of time with DS during the day, and has put...

    Have you had your baby checked for a tongue tie? There isn't much rhyme or reason to it, but my situation was similar to yours. Nursing was painful at first, which I attributed to "getting used to...

    Re: Rental Grade Pumps: Which one?

    I would definitely buy a professional grade if you plan to pump on a somewhat regular basis. My Medela PISA has served me well, and most women who use it have great results. Until I went back to...

    Re: pumping decrease at 10 months..

    Thank you ladies! I'm getting by by adding in a night pump, and hopefully can maintain the 9oz for the next 2 months or so. If not, may rent a hospital grade. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Pump weaning

    How did your babe take to the sippy cup? I'd like to do that too with the cow's milk, but my guy doesn't seem to get the concept quite yet. We only try a little water with his meals at this point.

    Re: Pump weaning

    Thanks! So if I pump 3 times a day, I should be able to stop in about 3 weeks or so? And as I phase out pumping, I can start replacing what I don't get with cow's milk? I have a small freezer stash,...
